CET fire Pumps manufacturers a variety of foam trailers from 150 to 2,000 gallons. These versatile trailers are ideal for use in Industrial, commercial, municipal and forestry environments.

Foam trailers provide a very effective tool for airport fuel storage and power plant installations.

WHY DO YOU NEED FOAM?

  • Foam is needed for any fire or spill involving flammable or combustible solids or liquids
  • Water will not float on hydrocarbon products such as gasoline or diesel fuel.
  • Water used on a fire in a contained area may sink, runoff or overflow.
  • Foam reduces toxic and flammable vapors given off by fuels.
